Feedback from Users of My Brest Friend
Very convenient and reasonably priced
I purchased the My Brest Friend for my wife. It was a bit more expensive than other brands, but it was still within my budget. I decided to buy it because I thought it would be easy to use for my wife. You can take off the cover and wash it. The color was a bit lighter than in the picture (Leaf), which matches great with white walls and furniture.
My wife says it’s very convenient. She said that when she’s sitting on the sofa her body doesn’t feel as much of the stress. It comes with a plastic belt, if you wrap it around your body, then you can wear it while you walk.
The cushion is shaped so that there’s no stressed placed on the baby’s head. It’s a rather soft material and would even be comfy to use as a pillow. I thought it was bulky at first, but I had my wife try using it, and she said it’s really convenient.
It’s convenient 🙂
I bought it before I had my baby, and I’ve been using it for about a week after his birth. I hold my baby like a football (a way of nursing holding the baby under the arms), so it was a bit difficult to sit my baby down and stabilize him there, but once I did it was extremely stable.
I face my baby upward and nurse him, so I don’t have to hold him when I use this product, which makes it very convenient. It’s also convenient that you can adjust the waist size.
I’ve been using it a lot of positions like sitting on a mat crossed legged or with my legs forward, sitting on a dining room chair, or sitting on the sofa.
The nursing cushion wasn’t tall (thick) enough at the hospital, so I added a pillow to it, but that isn’t needed with this product. It’s also helpful to my using when my husband holds the baby or feeds him, as he isn’t very used to it. I’ve washed the product several times, and it doesn’t get fuzzy in places. It feels very soft.
I recommend it to people looking for a nursing cushion!
I got out of the hospital a few days ago and was looking for my own nursing cushion. I was using a u-shaped cushion in the hospital, but it was too thick and didn’t fit well. I tried stacking another cushion on top of it and propping it up on a table, but I felt that it was very difficult to use.
This product was released in Japan in August. It had very good reviews, so I bought it even though it was a bit more expensive than other companies.
And it’s… super easy to use! I can use the belt to adjust it to a good height. There’s also waist support that u-shaped cushions don’t have that I’m very thankful for. My husband said that it could work as a good present for a baby shower.
No complaints here!
I bought it as a present for my friend, and she is very satisfied with everything about it - the size, shape, design, and how it’s easy to use.
It’s a tad more expensive than other cushions, but I got a few other friends to pitch in and buy this. Any mother would be very happy to receive this.
The My Brest Friend Nursing Pillow tops my list of must-have “essentials”! It is the only pillow uniquely designed just for breastfeeding that delivers the support mom needs. The most common breastfeeding problems such as sore nipples and decreased milk supply are alleviated or avoided as the pillow supports the baby directly up to the breast making it easier to achieve the perfect latch every time! It also supports mom to sit up straight, preventing strain on the shoulders, back and neck. I highly recommend this product to all of my clients.

As a Registered Nurse and an Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant with over 20 years of experience, I’m very careful about which products I recommend to my clients. The My Brest Friend pillow is superior at supporting the baby and the mom for optimal positioning while breastfeeding. It helps to relax the mom’s hands, back, and neck because of the support it provides, while also allowing the baby to be at just the right height for breastfeeding. Helping a mom relax will allow her to truly enjoy her breastfeeding experience. The My Brest Friend pillow is the only breastfeeding pillow I recommend to my clients.

It takes only one time of use to know the quality of the design over the other pillows out there. I can’t tell you how many pillows we sell to moms who started with the Boppy and then used our My Brest Friend in our mothers’ room and consult rooms. It sells itself!

Our group of Lactation Consultants recommends MBF because it is the nursing pillow that does not need additional support; Boppy needs other pillows to fill the gap created when it slips away from the body.

I have to say that this is the best breastfeeding pillow EVER! I teach baby-wearing classes and am a birth doula and always suggest this pillow to my students and clients! I always bring my pillow to the birth so that they can use it to help get breastfeeding established. So thank you thank you thank you for making an awesome product!

Marin General Hospital exclusively uses My Brest Friend in all of our postpartum rooms. They are recommended by our Lactation Consultants as the best nursing pillow on the market for breastfeeding success. It is a ‘must have’ item for all breast feeding moms.
